About This Listing
Villa Toucan, nestled in a secluded cove near Playa Ocotal, is on the Northern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. As part of the Bahia Pez Vela Resort you'll have access to an ebony beach, two pools, free wireless internet, a restaurant, a toddler pool, a concierge/office and an abundance of peace and quiet which may be gently interrupted by the local howler monkeys.
Villa Toucan is one of the 25 beach side villas (as opposed to the 15 mountain side - oceanview villas). Only one row of villas separates you from the beach. The pool, restaurant and beach are barely a minute walk away. You can wake up in the master bedroom, go outside onto your private balcony and see and hear both the ocean waves and the howler monkeys in the nearby trees. (Of course, the villa is air conditioned and daily maid service is available.) We've also planted many different flowers around Villa Toucan, particularly the kind that attract hummingbirds. There's also a papaya and mango tree, pineapples and passion flower vines. You can enjoy many different nearby
activities (they're all listed below)...or simply relax on the secluded beach, listen to the gentle waves while getting a massage, fall asleep in a hammock or view the fish and unique creatures in the nearby tidal pools.

The is a fantastic place to stay for a group of friends or a family. There are three bedrooms upstairs and a large kitchen, dining, and living area downstairs. Our group of five had plenty of space, and the location was perfect. We could walk to the beach, pool, and restaurant in less than a minute, and we had each of them almost to ourselves. There are pans, utensils, stove, and a grill if you want to make your own food. Plan on making your own breakfast, as the on-site restaurant doesn't open until noon.
When we wanted to check out Coco or Ocotal for either a new restaurant, beach scene, or shopping, they were only a ten minute drive away. Many excursions can be booked through the resort or on your own, and would likely originate from Coco. We did a sunset/snorkel cruise which was great.
Henry and Liz were responsive to email and very friendly. They will make sure any questions are answered. The listing description and all information that they provided was accurate.
The only people I would not recommend this place to would be to people who won't have a car (could make due without one, but it's much easier to have one here), or people looking for a party-all-night atmosphere. But anyone looking for a relaxing, beach-side vacation should definitely consider this place, especially if it's a group of 4 or more who want some separate bedrooms.
